For some, leaving an area near the beach and heading towards the mountains isn’t an ideal situation. That’s exactly what happened for Joonas Donskoi after his term in San Jose ended and the Colorado Avalanche signed him with a four-year deal, estimated at $15.6 million.

He probably won’t notice much of a difference, due to all the traveling the Avs do, but it’s a transition to a younger and deadlier squad. Colorado picked him up mainly for depth reasons, already one of the younger teams in the league. They’re projected to be one of the top teams as the Avs begin to create a dynasty in the Mile High City.

Donskoi had played all four seasons prior for San Jose and is coming off his career-best season with 37 points. He’s played in some big moments for the Sharks, putting together a solid run during the playoffs in 2016 where he scored six times and assisted on six other goals.

While added for depth purposes, Donskoi has the experience to help the growth of the Avalanche and will barely break into his 30s once his contract expires.
